Energy transition

Get a deeper understanding of how greener, cleaner energy is driving change

The global energy market is undergoing permanent, structural change, away from fossil fuels, towards renewable energy and electrification.

Without commodities such as lithium and cobalt, there will be no energy transition. Companies extracting and producing these materials play a critical role in meeting the world’s climate goals.

Our cross-commodity experts  provide you with energy transition forecasts, market news and analysis. This will help you identify risks, make sense of supply/demand dynamics and understand how the energy transition impacts price.

What’s happening in the energy transition market today?

Demand for green, clean energy and the drive towards net-zero are transforming commodity markets. Our energy transition forecasts and insights will keep you informed on the key forces of change and their impact on price.

Key lessons from our latest Chicago event
China’s cobalt sulfate and cobalt metal prices trended down in June after a slight pick-up in demand failed to offset the headwinds of sufficient supply and bearish sentiment following the lifting of Covid-19 lockdowns in Shanghai on June 1.
Lithium has become one of the world’s most coveted commodities in the drive to the energy transition, with governments working to align around its production just as they have traditionally aligned around oil
Fastmarkets presents the key takeaways from the Move – Mobility Re-imagined 2022 event, held in London, June 15-16
Why the last mile of charging infrastructure is the most challenging
Increased supply of alternative feedstocks, along with weak demand, has caused the China domestic nickel sulfate price to trend down since hitting a record high on April 22.
